Explore Mgahinga Gorilla National Park

The Mgahinga Gorilla National Park is located between 2,227m and 4,127m above sea level. It was established, as its name implies, to save the endangered golden monkey and the rare mountain gorillas that live in its extensive woods.

The park is significant not just for its wildlife but also for its cultural value, particularly for the local Batwa pygmies. The “original people” of the forest were this hunter-gatherer community, and their profound understanding of its mysteries endures now.

The three extinct conical volcanoes that make up Mgahinga’s most notable characteristics are a part of the magnificent Virunga Range, which is located near the borders of Uganda, Congo, and Rwanda. The nearby parks in these nations are included in the much larger Virunga Conservation Area, which Mgahinga is a part of. The summits of the volcanoes provide as a stunning backdrop to this breathtaking environment, and their slopes contain a variety of habitats and biological diversity.
